Overall Condition Good. Most of our pieces have spent decades on at least two continents, and have been treasured by several owners.   Small splits, scrapes and cracks are a normal part of their patina attesting to their age and extensive use.  We examine each piece carefully when we receive it and report any damage we find in our listings.  Please look carefully at the pictures which may also reveal condition and damage.

Additional Information: A well modeled clay vessel from the DRC with a human face on top. This pot has a solid handle and a pouring hole in the front. It was probably used to hold and pour water in and around the home.
